Kynlee - Congrats, girl! Those are great beta numbers! I bed you must be super excited about the u/s!!
Thanks for the prayers! Yes, they always do the egg retrievals with conscious sedation at this new clinic. My first IVF was at a different clinic, and I was completely asleep. The ER wasn't bad though, it was actually fun to watch the doctor retrieve the eggs, I could see everything on the screen
The ER part only took 10 min!
Ninde - Yes, fertilization report will be tomorrow! I have never watched "A gifted man", but I have a friends who absolutely loooves it!
Always Angel - Yes girl, gatorade is my best friend now LOL. Can't wait for your beta results! I am praying for a BFP for you!
MadameX - yes, fertilization report tomorrow! The pineapple juice with mint is great for fluid retention. I had more today.
All you need is 1/3 of a pineapple, 15 mint leaves, some ice cubes and 2 cups of water (you can add more water if you like). I sweetened mine with stevia.
Cyn22 - Thanks! I have also been doing acupuncture for a year now. I had chronic back pain and the acupuncture helped me a lot! I haven't had pain since I started with the treatment. I also have acupuncture for other things like sinuses pressure, the infertility, stress, knee pain etc LOL pretty much everything, and I love it!
AFM - Feeling sore and crampy. I had some pineapple juice with mint and chicken from boston market for dinner. Took my antibiotics and percocet, hopefully that will help with the pain. Still worried about OHSS but also amazed that I had more eggs after a protocol with less medication.
